V3 is an extension of the Rocket collection and a continuation of the Rocket tradition. We were looking for a one board quiver type of design. Starting with the V2-Rocket, the most notable difference being the double wings cut in the tail outline. These wings accelerate the reduction of surface area in tail curve, resulting in a noticeably narrower “Rocket” tail. Less width behind the rear foot equals more precision and more control in the pocket. It also allows for functionality in a wider range of wave size. The tail width at 12″ is still substantial, netting a board that still feels fast, stable and squirty …even in smaller surf. When ridden as a quad, the narrower tail is freed up, allowing the surfer to stand a bit further forward and still remain loose and free in small surf. The nose outline was also pulled in a bit, in the 12-18″ area, netting a more elliptical, catch free, overall outline that fits into curvy wave faces better than Rockets of the past. A more freed up and quick reacting outline that handles a wider range of waves, even powerful and well overhead, but still easy to paddle and surf in small or crowded conditions. Inspired by the positive performance feedback from the “Grocket” version (with single wing and pulled in swallow) that we released years ago. The “Grocket” was, and continues to be, a custom order favorite. Like the Grocket, The V3-Rockets higher performance characteristics in relation the other Rockets (and their wide tails) makes it the “fishy” board for guys who don’t ride fish!
ABOUT THE CARBON WRAP SURFBOARD CONSTRUCTION…
Our Patented Carbon Wrap construction eliminates a standard wooden stringer and alters all traditional flex principles.
Our exclusive Carbon bands are strategically positioned running from nose to tail on the surfboard.
Flaring the carbon out towards the rail utilizes the contortional twist creating optimum flex and drive. It is the unique method of wrapping these carbon bands from the bottom of the board, and around the rail onto the deck that provides the unique load and release.
The carbon wrap technology is designed to increase drive and allow positive tail flex providing a lively, next level performance based board that will propel your surfing into the next level
